Following on from their St. Patrick’s Day performance at Áras an
Uachtaráin, Kerry’s award winning Shannon Vale Céilí Band are preparing
to launch their debut album in Listowel, Co. Kerry on June 7th.

Shannon’s Lovely Vale takes it’s title from a newly composed tune by
renowned musician and composer, Maurice Lennon, of Stockton’s Wing fame.
Having composed this piece in honour of the band, Lennon also features
as guest artist on the recording. The album includes music and song of
North Kerry, much of which previously has been unrecorded.

The band comprises an impressive line–up of musicians featuring Sheila
Garry and Colm Kissane (Fiddles), Marianne Browne (Flute/ Whistles), Joe
O’Sullivan (Flute/Vocals), Mike Collins (Banjo/Mandolin/Flute), John
Collins (Drums), and Patsy Broderick, formerly of Arcady, features on
Piano. Critically acclaimed accordionist Danny O’Mahony is the driving
force behind the band. The combined result is a powerful and dynamic
overall sound, enriched by the spectrum of individual styles and a
shared appreciation of the North Kerry tradition.

The original band was formed in Ballyduff in 1960 by Dr. Mick Sweeney.
Following the revival of the Shannon Vale by leader Danny O’Mahony in
2009, they have since achieved huge success including winning the
coveted title of All–Ireland Senior Céilí Band Champions at Fleadh
Cheoil na hÉireann 2011.

The album will be officially launched on Saturday June 7th at 8pm in
The Listowel Arms Hotel, Listowel, Co. Kerry. Among the special guest
artists who will appear in concert on the night include Maurice Lennon,
Cyril O’Donoghue, Johnny Ringo McDonagh, Sliabh Luachra Set Dancers, and
world champion dancers Niamh O’Brien & Tomás Ó Sé. “Enduring vigour
and elegance from the rich musical tapestry of North Kerry; music of
heart & soul; as good as it gets” Joanie Madden – Cherish the Ladies
